Fatal Fields is living up to its name after it was discovered that a small area near the Fork Knife is instantly killing players.

The issue was identified by players on Reddit, with one thread helpfully marking the lethal spot on the map.

Redditor u/Chaptix shared a video of the bug in action, which you can check out below, along with the map pinpointing the deadly location.

Epic has said it’s aware of the problem, and will be “releasing a fix for this issue shortly.”

Fortnite patch v8.01 rolled out earlier today, and introduced buried treasure – a legendary rarity item found in chests and from floor spawns, that will lead players to “X marks the spot”. Hitting the area with your pickaxe will result in a haul of legendary goodies.

Season 8 kicked off last week, giving the game a nautical makeover.

Season 8 Week 2 challenges leaked a few days early, so you can take a peek at what’s likely to be in store this Thursday.
